Are we turning into a police state?
The Occupy Wall Street protests have dropped from the headlines for a little while and they come back from time to time but there is little talk about addressing any of their concerns. There are protests about just about every other subject you can imagine and in most cases the politicians are making it clear that they’re going to do the most extreme thing possible if the majority of the public doesn’t make an enormous amount of noise and if they do they will still do as much as they can get away with while distorting the coverage in the Mass Media.
police protestors storm troopers. There are many more where that cam from and the government doesn’t seem to be responding to the public much if at all; instead they continue breaking records when it comes to collecting bribes thinly disguised as campaign contributions and feeding those who accept the traditional Mass Media as a reliable source an enormous amount of propaganda bought and paid for by those bribes.
We still have a few more months before the election and if we can elect a large number of independent candidates including a third party president at the Grass Roots level then worse violence by the state and purges can hopefully be avoided; if not there will be much more protests and whether they escalate to purges or not may depend whether or not their storm Troopers obey or not.
